The Parrot Lounge has been serving thirsty beachgoers since 1970. The bar, located just a block west of A1A on Fort Lauderdale Beach, is a mecca for bikers, tourists, and sun worshippers who come for the excellent beer selection, the General Tso's chicken wings, and the no-frills, friendly ambiance. On weekends, the party spills out into the street and up on the roof, and yet the Parrot always maintains its "chill." Maybe because the bar truly respects the neighborhood in which it resides: It conducts regular beach cleanups (with beer as a reward for a job well done).
